Our satellite internet solutions are able to provide for fast, reliable internet, voice or email connectivity from your site in Africa, directly into our teleports in Europe.
We are able to provide for a variety of packages to suit all your requirements.
Telstream Telecoms offers its satellite solutions on a number of different iDirect platforms and satellites covering the whole African continent. Whether you require a high speed dedicated connection or a shared connection, we have a satellite solution for you.
The shared satellite internet package is the ideal solution for businesses and organisations wanting high quality connectivity at a competitive price.
We can offer bandwidth ranging from 64 kbps to 4 Megabits per second. All services are “uncapped” i.e. there is no limit to the amount of data you may send or receive.
Guaranteed minimum speeds
As opposed to the 'fair use' or 'expected bandwidth', our shared packages offer customers guaranteed bandwidth as defined in their service level agreement. We do also offer dedicated services.
As a customer, you select your minimum bandwidth in advance by choosing one of our subscriptionplans.Available additional bandwidth is allocated dynamically to the connection's users.
Our shared satellite internet packages are divided into maximum burstable up and down bandwidth, e.g. 256/512 Kbps, with each package having an associated Committed Information Rate (CIR)*. The contention ratio dictates the CIR.
*CIR is the amount of guaranteed bandwidth associated with a package, and is critical when running applications such as VOIP (Voice over IP) which requires a guaranteed up/down bandwidth of 25 Kbps. A client using VOIP would have to start with a bandwidth of 256/256 kbps on a 10:1 contention (CIR of 25/25 kbps).
